The MOST AMAZING photographer! Drake and his wife Ashley were fantastic to work with! After first meeting with Drake, my husband and I knew right away that he would be a perfect fit for our engagement and wedding photos. He was very accommodating to our location for our engagement photos and after receiving those we are anxiously awaiting our wedding day photos. Our entire wedding party and family sincerely enjoyed Drake and his wife's effort to get the best shots! I cannot express enough how much of a value they bring to your wedding day! I hope to one day use them again in the future!

Drake did our engagement photos which were wonderful and then him and his wife did our wedding! We are so blessed to have found them. Not only is their talent so incredible, but the price was right. We are so thankful to the both of them. Drake’s wife Ashley was such a sweetheart in helping me not be nervous and did not make it feel awkward, she pulled us all out of our shell during getting ready and was able to laugh and join in the fun. Drake is the same way, so easy to work with, gets you the best shots by putting you at ease and just an all around great guy! We were really stressed because we had a 5 pm wedding in the fall and were were fighting the sun. Despite the time crunch we got so many beautiful photos to cherish! We can’t wait to see the videography! I’m so glad we chose to do video last minute because I lost my vows and did not have a copy. If anyone is on the fence on videography, I recommend doing it because pictures can’t capture the heartfelt words. We are so excited to see our wedding album and loved the personal engraved box they sent us with the drive that held our photos! Turn around time on photos was faster than expected too! Thanks so much!

We used Drake and CO for our photographers as well as videographers for our wedding on March 19, 2017. We had 4 different people either taking stills or videoing us. They were AMAZING! They are so friendly and make the whole picture taking process easy and painless. They do a great job of staying pretty invisible while taking TONS of photos. They even had a drone to capture some aerial shots of our big day. We have not gotten our pictures back yet as the wedding was just a week ago, but I know that they are going to be beautiful pictures and we CAN'T WAIT to see them!
"Drake and Ashley shot our wedding yesterday. They were AMAZING and put in so much effort and thought. Drake was so easy to work with, personable, reasonably priced (although worth any price!), laid back and creative. We couldn't appreciate him and Ashley more, we cannot wait to see our pictures! He shot my sister in law's wedding and they turned our absolutely beautifully so I know ours will too! " - Jane and Marc
"If you are looking for a Colorado photography, look no further! Drake Busch is phenomenal, and did the most amazing job capturing our wedding day. Drake and his assistant showed up to the wedding site promptly, ready to go, and full of energy. They arrived at the perfect moment to give their opinion on setting up the arch for the ceremony at just the right angle. Then they whisked away the dress, shoes, suit and rings to take pictures. Then each of them took pictures of the bride and groom getting ready. When it was time for our first look, Drake coordinated the timing perfectly to capture the special moment. At one point, he had us stand on a bridge, and he went off tromping down the hillside towards the creek. He doesn't let anything get in his way, and is fearless in capturing the shot he wants. He consistently gave us pointers on where to look and what to do, which I found extremely helpful. He choreographed our wedding party in a few different locations around the property which turned out amazing. During the ceremony it started to rain, and Drake passed out about a dozen umbrellas that HE had brought. For pictures after the ceremony, he pulled over a handful of chairs himself to arrange people in a group. He directed people where to go and how to stand, so that the spacing in all of the pictures were perfect. He consistently went above and beyond, all day, and into the evening during the reception. I couldn't be happier with the pictures that Drake captured. Everyone who has seen the pictures has commented on how awesome they are. Drake is a true professional, extremely talented, and very fun to work with. I recommend him in heartbeat, and will use him for pictures in the future, any chance I get." - Allison and Tim
"Drake and Ashley were the photographers at my wedding last November and they did an AMAZING job. I have gotten numerous compliments on how beautiful our wedding pictures are, and I am totally in love them! I love how they captured all of the small details throughout the day - my jewelry and dress, the wedding program, the flowers and centerpieces, and the architecture in the church. They did a great job capturing our family and friends, which was very important to me. They also created creative shots throughout the day that may our photos look unique. They were totally committed to doing everything possible to get the best pictures, which included spending 30 min outside in the freezing cold and snow. And they were great people to work with! Drake was very helpful throughout the planning process. He responded promptly whenever I had questions or specific requests. I would definitely recommend Drake Busch Photography to anyone in need of a photographer. " - Lindsey
"As a wedding planner, I work with many photographers and Drake is one of the best! From his responsiveness through the planning process to his easy-going demeanor on the wedding day, to the creative way that he captures the special moments and details, he was a pleasure to work with. His photos were a great mix of lovely, fun, sweet, and romantic. We can't wait to feature them on our blog!" - Stacy
"Drake and his wife Ashley captured our day in such amazing photos. I've been in two other weddings Drake has shot as well as attended two others and just love his energy. Every guest at my wedding were so impressed with how hard he worked and how many photos he took. He adds a personal touch to working with him that, without, I don't think our photos would have turned out the way they did. Doing our first look photos was nerve-wracking, and I was shaking like a leaf which made it hard to walk down the side of a mountain in my wedding dress. Recognizing this, Drake had me pause, take a deep breath and just take a moment before walking to my now husband which made all the difference in getting me down this mountain. I plan on using Drake in the future to capture more moments as my new family grows." - Vanessa and Josh
My husband and I used Drake as the photographer for our wedding. Drake and his team are reliable, trustworthy, talented, and professional. We had two ceremonies and one reception in one day and Drake was awesome and flexible with all our needs. We love how he is so personable and easy to get along with. He is able to get the crowd to have fun while also being organized and efficient at getting everyone organized for the perfect photos. He made everyone feel so comfortable and my husband and I really enjoyed spending time with him and Ashley. Not only did he get all the group shots and amazing photos of my husband and I, but he got some special candid photos and action shots on the dance floor. He does such a natural job of capturing the moment without being noticeable. We loved how he just felt like part of the party and never once got in the way. We highly recommend Drake and Ashley and are 100% happy with the services they provided.
Drake and Ashley are quite simply the best! My husband and I are a Dallas couple that planned a Vail wedding. Our first time to meet both of them was over facetime, and they immediately made us feel known and a part of their family. They listened to our vision and values for our wedding and we're invaluable in connecting us with other trusted vendors in the Vail and Denver area. Neither my husband nor I particularly like the spotlight and we honestly were a little anxious about our engagement photos. However, Drake made us feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera from the moment we started. He took a wonderful variety of classic and artistic photos and somehow captured the essence of our personalities and relationship in the photos. We left our engagement shoot saying how surprised we were at how easy and fun it was to take those pictures! On our wedding day, Drake, Ashley and team were quite literally everywhere in the best way! They captured everything from the smallest details to the most memorable moments without us even noticing. They captured every combination of bridal party, family and friend photos we could have hoped for AND some! Some of our favorites are the candid shots we couldn't have planned for or expected, like subtle hand holds, reactions to toasts and glances between me and my sister. Drake and Ashley were timely, creative and incredibly encouraging. They once again managed to capture a perfect mix of classic photos and artistic expressions that capture the essence of our relationship. They kept us smiling and laughing throughout the day, and even pulled out a granola bar mid-shoot when they heard my stomach growling (what more could you want?!). Their photographs are the highest quality pictures. We (and our family and friends) were quite frankly in awe of the photographs. They memorialized the greatest day of our lives, and thanks to their talent and hard work, we can bring that day back to life over and over again.

'I have had the amazing opportunity to work alongside Drake Busch as a second-shooter this wedding season and I am so impressed with his services. He is a true wedding photography professional, and his work ethic is unrivaled. He pays attention to every little detail at weddings and is always looking for the perfect photograph. He is friendly, energetic and truly knows his craft. Consider yourself lucky if you book Drake for your wedding; you will not be disappointed!' -Ashley
"Drake has been outstanding to work with during the wedding planning process! My fiancé and I met with at least 6 other photographers and none of them came close to the value and quality of Drake Busch. I felt comfortable right away with him, and that helped tremendously when taking photos. We got our engagement pictures back a couple of weeks ago and everyone has raved about the high quality of the pictures. I had such a hard time picking favorites for our save the dates! I cannot wait to see pictures after our wedding day. Definitely choose Drake...you will not regret it!" - Morgan
"I love Drake Busch Photography. Drake and Ashley are the most easy going and funny photographers to work with. I trusted him with all my photos and poses. He knows the lighting and what looks good! I have been to at least 4 weddings where he has been the photographer and 1 more in the works! Within my group of friends he is our "family" photographer, we would never go anywhere else! Drake is easy to get in touch with, answers all questions quickly. No question is a silly question to him. He knows how to handle brides and their families. His prices are extremely competitive. You will not regret choosing Drake! I know for a fact he will do anything for the perfect shot with the perfect light.... I heard at my wedding he climbed a tree to take a photo from above of the boys doing shots at the bar. Sad I missed that shot ;-)" - Kelly and Jason
We used Drake and Ashley for our engagement session, our wedding photos, my boudoir photos...and we will continue to use them for whatever future events come up. They were so relaxed, listened so well to what we wanted and did not want, and we were thrilled with how everything turned out! Our wedding pictures in particular were stunning. They found every opportunity for added color, awesome angles, and touching moments.

Drake and Ashley helped make our day memorable in more ways than one. From the moment we met them to the end of our wedding day, they were professional, friendly and made us feel comfortable. They were able to capture the photos we had requested and make sure all the details were in line, even beyond the photography. We had a photo booth at our reception and they captured amazing photos of all our family and friends enjoying themselves. We could not have asked for a better couple to photograph our wedding. We received a large amount of praise from family and friends in the amount of photos they saw Drake and Ashley taking and then the quality of those photos.
- Kelly and Matt Pilger
All I can say is Wow! Karlea and Madison's highlight video is spectacular. You and team did an incredible job! We can't wait to see the entire thing. Thank you, thank you, thankyou! You captured the day beautifully and something they/we will cherish for a life time.
